H&M opens its biggest UK store

Swedish clothing retailer Hennes & Mauritz (H&M) is to open its largest British store in Glasgow this winter.

The fashion chain is relocating from the Buchanan Galleries shopping centre to a 65,000sq ft store at 185 Buchanan Street. The new shop will be double the size of the current unit, with an additional 30 jobs. H&M, which was founded in 1947, opened its first branch in the UK in 1976 and now has 260 stores in Britain.

Carlos Duarte, H&M’s UK country manager, said: “We are delighted to be relocating to 185 Buchanan Street. This is a very exciting opportunity to expand our brand.
